Geronimo Trail Guest Ranch is a real western adventure! Horseback riding or hiking takes guests through open meadows, tall ponderosa forests, up on high hills where the views go on forever, and down into deep canyons with sheer cliffs and crystal clear streams. From the "Top of the World" guests can view the 3.3 million acre Gila National Forest, Aldo Leopold and Gila Wildernesses. Elk, mule deer, wild turkey, javelina and other wildlife abound. Pit houses, Cliff Dwellings, and Pictographs (rock art) of the earliest inhabitants, the Mimbres (750-1150 AD) to explore in the immediate vicinity. This is the land Geronimo and the Apaches roamed. Outstanding gentle and responsive horses for every ability. Comfortable, attractive accommodations, warm hospitality, relaxed atmosphere, great food. Come enjoy the peace and quiet at our small ranch!

An overall spectacular experience! Outstanding hard working and friendly people! Outstanding and very well taken care of horses! The type of food you would get at a 5 star restaurant and lots of it! A true back to nature vacation with no phones, no computers, no noise except the occasional bugling of a bull elk or the call of a coyote. This was my first time here, but not my last. I have already booked for 2021. Check it out, you will be glad you did!

The owners of the ranch, Seth and Meris, were very welcoming and friendly. They immediately put us at ease. Their chef, Fred, was incredible! We had the most fantastic food! Everything was homemade and delicious! My hubby and I are both senior citizens with severe arthritis so we weren't sure we'd be able to ride. Well, they made sure we got to ride. We both ended up taking two wonderful rides that we will remember forever. The horses were very gentle. Their other "rangler", Laura was so sweet. She served our meals, helped with the horses. It felt like a home away from home. Very quiet and peaceful. We will definitely return.

Just returned from my third trip to GTR and the Gila, and already looking forward to our next return and more adventures, amazing food, and awesome riding. The horses are awesome and the scenery is beautiful - something different each day, from views of the Gila, plenty of cows, elk, and other wildlife, to creeks running through canyons. Each ride and picnic lunch is filled with history and we always learn something new when Meris tells a story. Chef Fred's food is amazing and certainly not what you would expect for the middle of nowhere! We had trout, duck, and homemade ice cream... Meris and Seth are awesome. It is obvious that they care about the history of the area, their horses, and each guest that visits. Their horses are a part of GTR, with some having been there since the beginning of Meris's time at the ranch! If you want to ride, disconnect from the world, enjoy amazing food, awesome scenery, and great company, there is no better place than Geronimo Trail.

A place to disconnect from the world and enjoy nature is a much needed thing in this day and age. We are glad you enjoyed the horses, scenery, history and food during each visit :) We have loved sharing it all with you and look forward to more adventures the next time!

I just returned from my 4th trip into the Gila and GTR. The wonder I experienced on my first visit has only increased over the years and I happily offer the highest praise for this ranch. First, the scenery we ride through is varied and spectacular. We ride up to amazing vistas and down through incredible canyons. History surrounds the guest at every turn---from Geronimo to the old time homesteaders (some of whose ancestors still ranch today). The food is simply amazing! This is our third time enjoying Chef Fred's cuisine....and it keeps getting better! (This guy makes duck and his own ice cream in the middle of nowhere--crazy good!) Finally, the staff is simply the best. Being a small ranch, the owners are your guides. Not only is their love for the land obvious, but also their love for their horses. Unlike some ranches who rent their stock at the beginning of the season and return them at the end, Meris and Seth personally select and own the horses they use and they quickly become part of the GTR family. If you love to ride through the most beautiful places, eat the most delicious food, and enjoy the company of the most gracious hosts then Geronimo Trail is the best place to go!

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review! We have loved hosting you, getting to know you and exploring with you during your 4 visits! Seeing our guests' appreciation of this special area is one of the things that makes it so enjoyable for us :) Chef Fred is indeed amazing and I believe he will be returning for a 5th season! The horses are a very important part of our business as well and we feel that if we give them the best care, they will take care of us. We hope to see you again soon! Until then, Happy Trails!

If you read that poem by Sandburg you will have a better understanding of the soul of Geronimo Guest Ranch. Our 3rd Anniversary, first time on a horse for me and many years ago for my husband. The covid pandemic left behind when we entered the "off the grid" forest. Peace cleared our minds of the troubled world we left behind. The welcoming hosts where like the warm light of our childhood home. The comforting food and cabin among the best. As unexperienced riders the highlight was of course our horses. We felt secure with our new four-legged friends who were very patient as we were treated to unparalleled beauty and history during our ride. We cannot express our delight with this most memorable anniversary and hopefully will return again.
